Special public enrollment to close Sunday for health insurance

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A special enrollment period for health insurance on the state exchange is coming to a close on Sunday.

New Mexico residents with moderate incomes or living on the cusp of poverty are eligible for financial assistance with health care insurance premiums through federal pandemic relief.

Uninsured residents can also enroll in low-or-zero-premium policies by Sunday. Exchange members are also eligible to re-enroll.
